    Does the 'wifi only' iPad mini 2 have a GPS sensor?

    Thanks, I didn't think so. Can't figure out why the MLB.TV app still shows my home location while the VPN is elsewhere.

    It knows where you are based on local WiFi networks it can see.

    iPad Mini 2 GPS Question


    Exactly this. VPNs are unfortunately of no good use on the iPad I found years ago. The best bet was the fake GPS jailbreak apps that always got the job done for me in the past.

    That's the reason why I prefer cellular iPads.. The GPS chip.
